FAKE: Facebook Account Offering Loans in Kakamega Woman Rep’s Name Is an Imposter

By Peris Gachahi 

Muhanda has denounced the Facebook account.

This Facebook account purportedly offering loans in Kakamega Woman Representative Elsie Muhanda’s name is FAKE.

The purported loans are categorised according to purpose and range from KSh20,000 to KSh80,000. Application for the loans is to be done via the WhatsApp contact provided on the post.

The account under the username “HN Elsie Muhhandah” uses the legislator’s images in the cover and profile photos, and has 4.9K friends.

Muhanda denounced the account in question when contacted by PesaCheck for authentication.

“I don’t offer any such loans. These are fraudsters,” the Woman Rep said in writing.

Muhanda’s Facebook page uses the username “Elsie Muhanda” and has 18K followers. It has no information on the alleged loans.

PesaCheck has looked into a Facebook account purportedly offering loans in Kakamega Woman Representative Elsie Muhanda’s name and finds it to be a HOAX.

This post is part of an ongoing series of PesaCheck fact-checks examining content marked as potential misinformation on Facebook and other social media platforms.
